Oh, right! The NCAA still has to drop the hammer on the Miami football program for the great Nevin Shapiro caper of 2011, which we'd unbelievably thought at one point was the worst thing that could happen to college football, or something like that. Those were simpler times, and I'm pretty sure we all really miss them.
So, when might the NCAA get around to doing that? From the Miami Herald's Barry Jackson:
A high-level UM official said the school hasn't been given an updated timetable by the NCAA but will not be surprised if it doesn't receive its punishment until after National Signing Day in February. The UM official was disgusted by minor violations found in the basketball program, such as providing transportation (including flights) to players' family members: "That should never happen."
Multiple Canes players suffered suspensions of varying lengths during the 2011 season, and the U chose to skip a 2011 bowl bid and repay Shapiro $83,000 in donations. All of that isn't going to be enough to assuage the NCAA's wrath here, and it's got a long time to boil.
